The most frequently asked questions

 

Why should I replace the power lines on the roof of my rental property?

Over the years, homes have mostly moved to electric heating and nowadays, there are many more appliances in our homes. So the amperage of the existing wires on the roof no longer meets the required capacity.

Why do I have problems with the outlet or extension cord for my computer, even though I just replaced the extension cord?

The wiring in your extension cord is too small, and the cord is too long. I recommend you add a plug with a ground and also get a good quality surge protector bar.

Why should I have a GFI (ground) in my bathroom?

Simply to prevent electric shock; also, in older homes, to keep people from using the old plug fixtures. This type of fixture is non-standard today.

What kind of circuit breaker is needed for my pool and my spa?

Pool: It is mandatory according to standards to install a ground or GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter).

Spa: A GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) is mandatory since spas operate on 220V. This is to prevent possible fatalities.

Why have separate circuits for kitchen appliances?

It is very important to have separate circuits for these appliances because of the amperage of each device.

Why has the wiring of my house dried out over the years?

Because the circuits were overloaded. Example: When a 15Amp fuse was replaced with a 20Amp or 30Amp fuse. Also, wiring installed in the 1940s, 50s and 60s was not very good quality.

Why is it so important to install metal boxes in the ceiling when installing recessed fixtures?

Metal pots are used to protect the insulation in the ceiling. Without them, the heat given off by the recessed fixture could cause a fire. Also, the pots provide greater air circulation around the fixture, thereby extending bulb life.
